The Nexus Q may have a hard time competing with Apple TV but Google is not giving up on integrating your TV with other devices. The Nexus Q uses your Android smartphone or tablet in conjunction with Google Play to stream music and videos to your HDTV, sound system, or just speakers.
Says PC Worlds Liviu Oprescu, “The Nexus Q isn’t just an Apple TV clone device from Google. Think of the Nexus Q as a hybrid between Apple’s streaming puck and the Sonos music streaming stereo component. The Q features a built-in 25W amp that can power a pair of bookshelf speakers. In addition, users can sync Qs across multiple rooms.”
The price for this latest orb-shaped TV streaming media device is $299. Supposedly it has more features than Apple TV, but are they worth it? Probably not – if you are like me anyway.
